Para-Dressage Rider: European Individual & Team Gold medalist 2017-Sweden.
In 2012, Suzanna's life changed in a split second when a youngster reared over and landed on her twice, crushing her underneath. She had 9 operations and spent over half a year in hospital.
"At the time, the London 2012 Olympics were taking place, I remember watching them from my hospital bed and felt so inspired. It was a huge driving force for me."
Two years later she got back in the saddle before moving to Gloucestershire to spend time and focus on her riding at The Talland School of Equitation. Her results speak for themselves, and she's an inspiration with a goal in mind. Pegasus is delighted to be supporting her on the journey to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

"2018 has been a busy and exciting year for me. I’ve had a super competition season with my top horse Rubin Al Asad, my highlight being top 13 at One of the biggest European shows, Aachen CDIO, and being selected as reserve for the British World Equestrian Dressage Championship Team. Rubin Al Asad and I also became British National Champions for 2018. I also have some exciting news that my husband and I are expecting our 1st child in April 2019 which leads me nicely into my plans for 2019! My aim for 2019 will start by training at home for as long as I can with all my horses, Rubin Al Asad, Kristjan and Amiek C, after that it will be to safely introduce our new family member to the world. After this major mile stone in my life I hope to come back and successfully campaign Rubin Al Asad and my younger Grand Prix horse, Kristjan, who I successfully debuted at international Grand Prix at the end of 2018, for the British European Dressage Team. Throughout all these experiences I’m never without my Pegasus white vitality bracelet accompanied by the rose gold navy snaffle friendship bracelet, they have to be my favourites as I’m in them day and night!!"

"So 2018 was pretty quiet, it's all been about getting Sisco sound and rehabilitating back into full work. I'm pleased to say he has made a fantastic recovery. 2019 looks like it's going to be an immense year where you will see my new ride Floyd and Sisco both out on the competition circuit. I will be aiming Sisco at some low level dressage and we will see how we get on.... there is no pressure on him to compete at all but he loves to have a job. Floyd is new to me so we need to build our relationship. We've been hacking and had some jump lessons and through out 2019 we will be aiming to take him out on the bsja circuit....I'm so excited I can't wait as this is something I've never really done before. Xx
2018 was a strange year for me, I had some highs, lows, achievements and some disappointments, probably like most of you!
We found out that our Dalmatian Floss has terminal cancer but touch wood, she is bouncing around like a puppy. Matilda our Doberman was diagnosed with a spinal defect and had an extremely intrusive operation but again, fingers crossed, she seems to be going from strength to strength.
M's got the all clear in the spring and we began walk work, only to find at the end of the summer, he had self harmed again and has been lame since. 2018 also brought about big changes in my life and I have made some extremely tough choices, one was to give up my job in the mounted police. It was a heart breaking decision but sometimes we have to make these choices to make a change for the better. The summer saw the last time I would ever perform in the Metropolitan police Activity ride display team with my beloved Spitfire, who I have left behind to continue his career as a police horse.
I'm a big believer in fate, everything happens for a reason and I have very high hopes for 2019, the Foley's will find their new family home and M's will come sound and will make a come back, better than ever! I've always loved the vitality range from Pegasus Jewellery and I have a large selection of bracelets and rings. I believe the science behind this range helps me stay healthy, eases aches and pains and helps me sleep. But this year my favourite piece has to be the 3 horse shoe stock pin, this is beautifully designed encrusted with tiny diamontes, I have promised myself and M's that this piece WILL be worn this year when we both get back to business!
Stay positive, love Nici
Anna made her curling debut for Team GB at the 2009 European Youth Olympic Festival and went on to win gold at the World Student Games in 2011. Glasgow Caledonian University graduate Sloan made her Olympic debut at the Sochi games in 2014, winning a bronze medal as part of the Great Britain ladies’ team. The two-time world medallist also has eight European medals to her name, and picked up her second gold at the 2017 Championships held in St Gallen in November. Anna was once again part of Team GB for the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games earlier this year, where the ladies team finished a proud 4th place after defeat in the bronze medal match.
"This year I shall be competing my top horse KBIS Zavir at Inter I level and also start doing some music classes which I am really looking forward too.
Bo, my rising 6 year old, will be out at Elementary and aiming at a Medium by the end of the year. I also have baby Pippin who shall start to get out to training and the odd show too hopefully in 2019 but he is still growing so taking it easy with him.
I also have the ride on two clients horses who I shall be out competing and I am very excited to see what we can achieve together as they are both prospects for the higher levels. I shall also continue teaching and training from my premises, and as I am fully booked for training livery already for the year ahead it’s set to be a busy one!
Thankfully I have daily benefits from wearing my vitality bracelets and I know that without them I wouldn’t be able to comfortably do what I am doing without wearing a cumbersome knee brace and take a lot of pain relief. It may sound like a cliche that it’s changed my life but it truly has and I am eternally grateful for this little band of miracle."

"2018.. what a year! One to be forgotten for myself! With the point to point season in full swing, I headed to Cornwall for our first race with Euro Trash we had a blast coming 5th in a very competitive race!
Thinking we were going to great things that year, the ground got too wet and we never got another race as everything was cancelled. That didn’t ruin our hopes of having fun, team chasing was just around the corner.. but yet again we never ever got on course because of the awful weather! Suddenly Euro fell extremely sick and I lost him which was absolutely heartbreaking! Letsfacethemusic (Music) is now stepping up the mark and hopefully this spring we will be back on the team chasing circuit, starting him out at novice and hopefully getting back in the swing of intermediate! I can’t race ride this year due to health issues but we will be hitting the ROR classes this summer with hopes to qualify for the ROR championships at Aintree! Here’s to a better 2019!!"
Jess is a 22yr old event rider based in Dorset with two horses, Oliver and Bambi!
"2018 wasn’t the year I had planned for me or the horses! Everything went against us one way or another and the ground being too hard certainly stopped us doing what we love! But the beginning of the season was a success as me and Oliver completed my first CCI1* (now CCI-L2*) and then went on to do my first ever intermediate, both flying clear round some tough XC tracks too which I will never forget! Unfortunately due to hard ground and my horses taking top priority our season came to a halt, so Bambi didn’t get a chance to go out eventing! I still managed to compete at a few unaffiliated events and still have some fun! I was lucky enough to join #TEAMPEGASUS too as brand ambassador! Such an amazing opportunity to be part of such a lovely team of people! Also not to mention the jewellery is beautiful and I’m building quite the collection, my favourite being my vitality bracelets and my triple stirrup necklace!
Hopefully 2019 will be a kinder year and the weather will be good to us! I aim to do some more international events as the venues are so beautiful and I love a challenging cross country track! I also love taking part in local BE events. I will also be doing some dressage and showjumping as well and making sure my horses have relaxing hacks and lots of TLC! But the main thing I’m aiming for in 2019 is to have fun and really enjoy the season! I’m also grateful to have some amazing sponsors (Muddy Footprints & S&K Coombes Contractors) and be a part of Team Pegasus and add more gorgeous equestrian jewellery to my collection!
"In 2018 I focused on getting both my Exmoor Ponies out to some of the big county shows for the breed classes and my girls surpassed any expectation I had of them!
Highlights included my homebred Seòmar Karoo winning the 3year old class at Devon County before going Reserve Youngstock Champion and my home produced (as in - have owned her since she was 6months old!) Finchcroft Mabel standing Exmoor Champion, winning an NPS Silver Medal and being pulled forward into the final line up of the Cuddy Qualifier at Royal Bath & West. Riding wise, I focused on getting Mabel out hacking both alone and in company as she was 5yrs old in 2018, and building up her confidence and fitness. I did some groundwork with Roo but I’m letting her mature at her own pace and she’s not ready for backing quite yet. I’m very excited about 2019, my focus is on the NPS Summer Champs and having Mabel qualify to compete in the Picton Novice Championship there this August. We’re doing lots of dressage as well as showing outings this season to keep building our confidence and practicing our ringcraft - whilst Roo seems fairly content to be staying at home and chilling in the field this season! I am thrilled to continue to support Pegasus Jewellery in 2019, I never have my vitality bracelet and my inspo bangle off my wrists...and my sparkle pearl horseshoe earrings and necklace set continues to be my “go to” jewellery for any occasion!"

2019 saw us welcome a further 5 ambassadors to Team Pegasus with the hope of supporting a hand selected few. We're thrilled to introduce you to;
I started driving 5 years ago and trained my own welsh section B Tiff to drive. Our journey has been full of thrills and spills but we are a dedicated combination who have come up through the ranks and now focusing on a career driving with the British Team. Tiff has won the European Scurry Trial Championships, Evolution Young Pony Championships, Chatworth International as well as many wins in indoor carriage driving. We are thrilled to be part of Team Pegasus and hope our hard work and dedication to our sport brings us more amazing results in the future.
Hi everyone, I’m Sarah and I’m an amateur event rider from the bonnie Scottish Borders. I am extremely excited to be part of #TeamPegasus as I have been following and shopping with them for many years now and its incredibly exciting to see how the brand has grown.
The gorgeous Woody is my number one guy and is better known locally as SuperCob- I feel he is often underestimated in the warm up as he is *ahem* slightly chunkier than your average event horse but together we have evented up to BE Novice and had high hopes for making our debut at CIC* in 2018. Sadly, Woody went lame in 2017 with an injury to his tendon and had all of 2018 off, however he is back and feeling better than ever so we are very excited to get going again in 2019 and hopefully have an absolute ball this season.
I also run my own equestrian business and am a keen blogger/vlogger, blogging monthly for British Eventing so as you can imagine I am always running around like a headless chicken! The Pegasus Vitality bracelet changed my life about a year and a half ago as just a week after putting it on I found I was sleeping better and waking up more easily. It’s been a huge factor in helping me make the most of my day and is a product I truly believe in therefore I jumped at the chance to become a brand ambassador for Kim and her fantastic team.
